Homeschooling Survival Tips with Essential Oils

As we head BACK TO SCHOOL, I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to use essential oils in our homeschool! (Keep reading to the end, I have a FREEBIE offer for you!)

First of all, you should know, I have teenagers. My particular teenagers don’t always buy into the oil thing OR want to be excited about what mom is excited about. 😉 So, just because I can’t always get my kids to participate or be excited about essential oils doesn’t mean that I can’t still use essential oils in our homeschool! {Insert my evil laugh…}

My 3 Favorite Tips for Surviving Homeschooling with Essential Oils

1. Diffuse, diffuse, diffuse.

This is the BEST way to use aromatherapy in your home and help your children to reap the benefits of essential oils without ever even touching a bottle themselves!

Diffusing is one of my TWO favorite ways to use essential oils in my home! Aromatherapy is real, y’all.

Did you know that our SENSE OF SMELL is the ONLY SENSE that goes straight to the limbic system?? Why does that matter? Do you know what the LIMBIC SYSTEM does in our bodies?!?!

The primary structures within the limbic system include the amygdala, hippocampus, thalamus, hypothalamus, basal ganglia, and cingulate gyrus. The amygdala is the emotion center of the brain, while the hippocampus plays an essential role in the formation of new memories about past experiences.

Our EMOTIONS and our MEMORIES are so very affected by SMELL. This is one of the biggest reasons why essential oils WORK so well to help support our emotional wellness. 

(Well, along with the fact that God made them and He is the ultimate Creator and a good Father who knew what His children would need!)

My favorite oils to diffuse on a school day: 

  • Orange (great for a mood boost)
  • Anything Citrus (citrus oils are HAPPY oils)
  • Peppermint (helps wake us up!)
  • Joy – need I say more?

2. Use blends in roller bottles.

I use several blends in roller bottles on a regular basis. A roller bottle top will allow you to just ROLL the oil straight onto your wrists, neck, bottoms of feet OR those of your children! Easy and quick!

These 2 particular blends I’m going to share with you are 2 of my VERY FAVORITES.

Focus blend. I use this focus blend with my son every morning before school. I also use it right before we tackle a tough subject like math!

Happy mama or Happy student blend. This blend is the perfect perfume for mama or the perfect way to bring some HAPPY and MOOD LIFTING scents into your home!

3. Oils for the stressed out mom.

The number 1 reason I use oils for surviving homeschooling is to SUPPORT MY OWN WELL BEING. Stress and anxiety has always been a part of my mothering. If you’ve read my blog for long, you know that depression was a part of my life for so many years. Not until I started really focusing on my health did I start to find ways to help manage my stress & mood better. Essential oils play a HUGE role in helping me to feel my best, less irritable, I don’t feel that panicky anxiety anymore. Praise God!

My favorite oils for stress:

  • Frankincense
  • Valor
  • Orange
  • Peace & Calming
  • Ningxia (not an oil but it is a supplement that is infused with oils! This is our super fruit juice supplement that helps me with stress management and energy!)
